Edit: Just to elaborate a bit, it really depends on the school. Some schools give out fee waivers to those who, based on numbers, have a good shot at being accepted. Other schools give out fee waivers to those who are unlikely to get accepted so that the school can increase its selectivity ratings. And some schools do a little bit of both.
I think it's best not to read too much into it. If you are interested in possibly attending one of these schools, then take advantage of the fee waiver and submit an app.

schools do want to increase their URM admits if they have a low number of them.
but also can't a fee waiver be negative? schools don't want you because they know you can't afford it, or to raise their selectivity? wouldn't a school want the best numbers with everyone paying full tuition if possible?
